Yes, my take too is that the transformed work can indeed be used for profit.
It is the original work which has the non-commercial type restrictions.
If you go back to one of my earlier posts, I suggested a possible plan of
action for the contest that you might want to look at agiain and see if it
would work for you. If you think it would, you should probably ask if anyone
sees any problems. (Warning -I am not a lawyer and was not giving legal
advice. Honestly, if you need it, you should seek it.)
all the best,
